Business Problems Toolkit...
...Accounting services from £64pm
It's a sad fact that only one in four promising young enterprises survives its first three years out in the Business Badlands. Whether they fall to predatory competitors, inadequate training or just plain bad luck, the bones of these businesses litter the landscape as a terrible warning to those who walk this trail unprepared. At RIFT Accounting, we've managed to smash those statistics for our clients, raising their long-term survival rates to an amazing 94%!
With our range of high-performance tools, guides and services, we're teaching businesses how to do more than just survive. We want you to grow, and we know exactly what it's going to take to make that happen. We're the Accountants of Tomorrow, and it's time to think about the future.
With a single monthly fee, you'll get a lot more than simple number crunching from us. We'll give you practical advice and guidance on all aspects of your business, and we'll always be there when you need us. We'll also equip you with the tools and services you'll need to build your business your own way. With our help you'll grow in confidence and competence, and your business will develop as you do. Here are a few pieces of vital survival gear we provide for your Business Backpack:
Every great adventure needs a plan, and the best ones are clear, flexible and can be understood at a glance. The one-page business plan fits on a single sheet of A4 paper and tells you in an instant how you're doing now and what you should be doing next. It's a living document that changes as your situation does, so you'll always know where you need to focus your attention. Keep it up to date and you'll never be lost or directionless. We'll help you keep on top of it and use it to plan your next move as part of your monthly check-up. When you've grown enough to take on your first employees, a simple business plan will make sure everyone knows the destination you're aiming for and can pull together toward it.
Far from the terrifying, arcane documents you may be used to, our quarterly reports paint a detailed but clear picture of your business health. We're never more than an email or phone call away if you need help with it, and we're more than happy to meet face-to-face if you prefer. We’ll look at the numbers and patterns with you and point out the key obstacles and opportunities to watch out for. Getting to grips with these reports is the key to making better decisions for your business, so we'll make sure you're always up to speed.
It's an old saying, but it's still true today. If you fail to plan, you're planning to fail. If you're looking at the next three years and seeing a consistent 20% annual growth in your future, then the reason is because you have a detailed plan to get there. Working alongside the expert coaches and mentors we'll hand-pick to fit your business, we'll show you how to set your goals, make them achievable and make them happen.
The fact that we're giving you the tools to survive in the wild doesn't mean we're abandoning you out there alone. We're going to be with you for every step of your journey, so we're sometimes going to have to use scary-sounding terms like "strategic planning". Information is the most important tool you can carry in your survival kit, and that means knowing what you want to achieve, what skills and resources you have to make it possible and what you need a little more help with. The information you give us will help us build a plan together, make checklists to mark your progress and pair you up with the best partners and teammates. You can even talk to other RIFT clients to pool your experience and learn from each other.
If you're interested in freeing up time and cutting arduous, repetitive tasks so you can focus on what's important, then locking down your systems and processes will be vital as your business grows. For example, showing that you're compliant with relevant Standards and regulations can go a long way toward convincing investors and lenders that you're a safe pair of hands for their money. We make it easy for you to get your business in shape.
So, you've got clear, realistic plans in place, your accounts are transparent and well managed and you're ready to go out and secure that all-important investment. With all the necessary information at your fingertips, we'll show you the best places to start hunting. Alternative funding options may unlock doors traditional lenders slam shut, so we'll talk you through your choices and help you make the strongest possible case for investment in your business.
At RIFT Accounting, we understand that survival is just the starting point for your business adventures. Armed with the tools, services and resources we offer, you can look beyond just staying safe in the Business Badlands and start staking out your claim in them.
